Ketchikan Tours Page
Description: Guard Islands, a pair of small, rocky islets, stand sentinel over the northern entrance to Tongass Narrows,
which leads south to Ketchikan. Atop the larger of the two islands sits Guard Island Lighthouse, one of the most
accessible lighthouses in Alaska. Its history is brief but eventful, much like the history of Alaska itself. Located twelve miles
northwest of Ketchikan on Guard Island, marking the northern entrance to the Tongass Narrows from Clarence Strait.
Ketchikan is home to the world’s largest collection of totem poles, timeless monuments in cedar
from the first Alaskans. Native dance comes alive with regular performances by skilled groups, just
minutes from Ketchikan, at the Saxman Tribal House and at the Metlakatla Long House.
Two miles south from Ketchikan is Saxman Village. Its totem park boasts the single largest collection of
totems including the famed Abraham Lincoln pole and the Seward “shame” pole. Following in the footsteps
of their ancestors, carvers and their apprentices can be viewed sculpting poles, canoes, paddles and masks.
In a beautiful cove eight miles north of Ketchikan is Totem Bight State Park, where an historic collection
of totems and a native community house can be visited.
Ketchikan’s Totem Heritage Center displays a large collection of original poles retrieved from abandoned
village sites and hosts classes teaching traditional art forms like weaving and regalia making.
The Southeast Alaska Discovery Center houses contemporary poles, examples of native basketry and
other crafts and a traditional Native fish camp exhibit.
Throughout Ketchikan, totems are on display at public parks and even local residences. Several local
art galleries specialize in authentic Alaska native art, from miniature totems and hand woven basketry,
to carved silver, fabric art and original drawings and paintings.

Throughout the dark winters Alaska's residents look forward to endless summers.
The longest day of the year is June 21—in the Anchorage area nighttime lasts
